Abstract

Solvothermal reactions of hexakis(4-formylphenoxy)cyclotriphosphazene (H6L1) with Cd(NO3)2·4H2O in H2O/DMF under different synthesis temperatures produced two new compounds, namely, {[Cd3(C42H24O18P3N3) (H2O)7xGuest}n (1), and {[Cd2(C42H24O18P3N3) (H2O)2xGuest}n (2). Compound 1 exhibits a novel 3D framework adopting 2,4,6-connected 3-nodal topology with the point (Schläfli) symbol {44·62}{45·62·88}{4} constructed from the joint of neutral Cd2 SBUs, mono-Cd ions and L1 ligands. Compound 2 reveals a 2D crystal structure exhibiting a 3,6-connected 2-nodal kgd topology with the point (Schläfli) symbol {43}2{46·66·83} constructed from the connection of Cd centers and L1 ligands. In these two compounds, the ligands L1 are fully deprotonated, whose six extended carboxyl arms connect six different/same metallic nodes to form high dimensional frameworks. The variable reaction temperature must be responsible for the higher coordination number and versatile coordination modes of carboxylates in 1 compared to the ones in 2, resulting in the formation of a distinct crystal structure. In the solid state, both complexes are photoluminescent (LMCT) at room temperature.
